My office needs a full team of Committee Volunteers.  Each will be asked to attend a specific committee, track its work, assist in research and help in preparing lists of proposed witnesses, review legislation and assist in the preparation of amendments. 

We will provide Committee Volunteers with a work space & resources on the Hill in our office in Confederation Building; provide orientation and training; ensure Committee Volunteer has training opportunities to learn about the Library of Parliament and Media Relations; provide a parliamentary security pass so they can access all Parliament buildings and attend Committee meetings. 

I pledge to provide a rich experience for bright young people.”
